East Village Radio (EVR) was an Internet radio station which broadcasted from a storefront studio in the East Village of Manhattan, in New York City. The station shut down on May 23rd, 2014.

EVR's street-level studio was on 21 First Avenue at East 1st Street. According to an MTA (Metropolitan Transit Authority) study of pedestrian traffic in New York City, almost 1,800 (1,000 during off-peak travel times) pedestrians passed by the sound booth per hour. Over 60 DJs and hosts provided 16 hours of free live programming a day, in two-hour show blocks, seven days a week. Programming featured a mix of music, news, comedy and commentary. Music ranged from indie to new wave to coldwave to hip hop and post punk to vintage jazz, funk and soul to house, techno and ambient electronic.

East Village Radio was established in June 2003, and broadcast on the airwaves at 88.1 FM. After an article in The New York Times described the station, the FCC sent a cease-and-desist letter as the station was unlicensed to use the airwaves. Due to the difficulty of obtaining new FM licenses, the decision was made to make EVR an internet radio station. Some time after this, it was decided to move the studio from its original location above a restaurant to a storefront booth on First Avenue in Manhattan. This was seen as a way of reconnecting EVR with the East Village community since the station was no longer literally on-the-air.

This archive is a collection of shows from the last 5 years of East Village Radio (2009-2014), comprising roughly 10,300 hours of programming. In it are captured the spirit, news, and heart of the East Village Radio experience. Where available, playlists and show descriptions have been added. Corrections and additions are encouraged.

If you are an East Village Radio DJ Alumnus, and have questions, additions, or corrections for your shows, or links to your current projects/whereabouts, please contact the curator, Jason Scott, at
